We had such an action packed half term after half term. We were learning about sustainable cities and created some amazing cities that had green roofs, walls, wind farms, solar panels and lots of green space for people to play in.
This half term we are learning about Zero Hunger. We have learnt about the benefits of organic food versus non organic food and created presentations about what we learnt. We have also learnt about how to budget when going food shopping thinking carefully about the food that people need to eat to be healthy and have the right nutrients.
In English we have been reading Street Child, we have learnt about the hardship his family are facing in terms of struggling with money, a place to live and having enough food. We have written scripts of what we think will happen in the next chapter and have acted some of these out.
In maths we have been learning to add decimals up to 3 decimal places, we are looking forward to answering some more problem solving activities with them.
In science we have learnt about the parts of a flowering plant and the life cycle of a flowering plant. Now we are setting up an experiment to determine which variable effects the growth of a plant.
